Re: Last day buck

Nice buck. I shot one very similar to that earlier this year. I rarely see bucks larger than that where I hunt.

Re: Excalibur Kid pulled it off

I believe the idea was to remove that particular button buck because of his unusual characteristics. I wonder how your statistics match up to the harvest numbers in South Carolina. I am not sure our statistics are watched that closely. They are trying to encourage hunters here to let younger bucks w...

Re: Seeking opinions

I have 2 savage rifles, a 30-06 for me and a .243 youth version for my kids. I hunt in an area with a max shot of 120 yards and I am sure they can out shoot my failing eyes. I agree with Dan, the big bonus is I don't have to feel bad about putting wear on them. I was hunting with a Remington 200th a...

Re: Loading pictures

I don't know about other hunting forums, but all my other forums host all the pictures. I don't post pictures here because I don't want to mess with a third party hosting service. And when the 3rd party hosting service decides to charge, like photo bucket did, all the links get broken and the thread...

Re: How old is old

I'm 50. My body feels much older from years of hard use. My mind still feels 20. Too bad they don't match!

Re: Buck'd Out. What now?

I agree Steve, that's a great buck. I too have questions on the weapon!

Re: Buck'd Out. What now?

That's a nice animal and you already have 2 8's, so that's pretty darn good overall. If I have enough meat in the freezer, I sort of get unmotivated. Now if my kids are going, that's a different story. But just me, I'll stay in bed where it's warm.

Re: Yall seen this one?

My son and I both use Millennium chairs in our ladder stands. We have insulated pads that we sit on that add some warm and padding. I love them! They are comfortable and silent. I have modified mine slightly to recline a little more, which I prefer

Re: Buck down! They're moving.

I have used the LTO for 2 years. $699 then. Mixed feelings as I have some IR binos for $250 that do better for what I want - to see in the dark. But the LTO will help more in not getting busted getting into or out of your stand/whatever. The LTO 2 on sale for $399 is a no brainer as it has almost d...
